Makthaverskan side project Westkust releasing debut LP on Run for Cover (stream a track)
by Andrew Sacher
Last year, Swedish post-punks Makthaverskan signed to Run for Cover to release their great 2013 album II in the US, and earlier this year they followed it with a new single “Witness.” Now, fellow Swedish band Westkust — who count Gustav Anderson and Hugo Randulv of Makthaverskan as members — have also signed to RFC, and they’ll release their debut LP, Last Forever, this summer on the label. (It comes out 4/22 in Scandinavia via Luxury.) First single “Swirl” is out now, and it’s got similar guitar lines to Makthaverskan, but it’s more jangle pop than post-punk. Listen below.
